While all that is artful about Let Me In comes straight from the original, the Hollywood version commands respect for not dumbing things down.
"not dumbing things down" and "removing a key scene" while adding action scenes seem like contradictory ideas. But I expected it all along...We must sanitize everything for strange Puritanical tastes. More brutal violence: A-ok.....Sexuality: won't somebody please think of the children!Beyond that, though, you pinpoint what seemed obvious about the trailers:"'Let Me In" is so similar as to leave some wondering, "Why bother?'"Because some people will never be caught dead watching a subtitled film, probably. So it appears those folks are getting a well-made English language film that misses a bit of the resonance of the original as a trade-off.

A rarity worth rewarding.
